Family, Cosmetic & Implant
The front tooth in the upper right side (look at the arrow in the first picture on the top row) had a root canal / post / crown done many years ago. Although the picture doesn't show, the tooth structure inside the crown broke at the gum level. It is impossible to put another crown to save the tooth. We decided to remove the tooth and put an implant on the same day.
Crown was loose and came out.
Tooth was extracted and implant was placed.
Temporary crown was fabricated and cemented.
The whole area was anesthesized (numb). The tooth was extracted and an implant was placed right after (second picture on the bottom row). A temporary crown was fabricated and screwed onto the implant. All of these things were done within 1-2 hours in one day.
The temporary crown was replaced in 6 months with a permanent crown.
